    Troy Bilt TB320. Not a year old. Ran fine today and once I stopped to empty clippings, feels like there is no compression and mower won't start.

You may want to check the gas cap to see if it clogged with dirt. If the gas cap is clear, you more than likely have a carburetor problem. If you need tips on carb. cleaning, feel free to ask.

    Thanks for the rating "forhimising4". Just curious, did this solve your problem?

    But, the battery drains out to quickly though Jim Parker what do you think it could be?

    then it will not kick over the starter after the battery runs out though as well ..

Self propelled mower will start but want stay running long? it runs about 3 or 4 min. then stop and when i restart it, it will start back up.


The fuel bowl has a float and needle, if the float isn't floating to open the needle for gas to flow into the carb, it will cut off. A kit can be purchased for about $5 or take yours out and soak and clean then replace. Usually when these go bad its best to replace them.

My Troy-Bilt mower starts easily but not as powerful, stays on for less than 5 minutes and gradually stops. some black smoke is coming out


If the black smoke comes out of the muffler, you are burning excess fuel and could have an air filter plugged up to restrict air intake and cause the engine to run rich, therefor black smoke.
